IB German ab initio SL is a two-year course designed for students who have no prior knowledge of the German language and plan to take the IB exam at the end of the second year. Using a communicative approach, students are introduced to the target language and its culture and learn to master a number of everyday situations in German. Reading, writing, speaking and listening will be equally stressed. The grammar taught in this course includes the present, the nominative, accusative and dative cases, the imperative, modal verbs and the present perfect.  

At the end of this course students will also be given the opportunity to sit an external examination to receive the Goethe certificate corresponding to their current level.
